“I went to work to find a system that we could afford, that I felt like would serve what we needed, and DonorPerfect by far, was the choice. You might be able to buy something that has more bells and whistles, or you may feel is more in tune with educational fundraising, but I’ll tell you straight off the bat, you’re not going to find anything that’s easier to adapt to what you got to use. You can’t beat it.”

Coming (to the DonorPerfect client conference) and actually meeting (DonorPerfect) people, without just talking to them on the phone; it’s not a “phony” friendly, it’s genuine. I love that experience so I would definitely recommend DonorPerfect.
